I believe that one of the best ways to achieve success in any course is to be organized and efficient with your time. It is also extremely beneficial to utilize the resources provided to you by the professor because if they have taken the time to prepare/upload them to our course it must be important and will show up again! Reading the assigned chapters, reviewing the powerpoints and utilizing the Edapt as an extra tool to review concepts and practice answering questions related to the information presented during that week can help as well.
Nutrition is so important to our daily lives because it can affect us in more ways than just physically (hair, skin, nails, physique, tooth decay). It can also affect the way that we feel. For example: decreased energy, reduced immunity, poor quality of sleep, or dizzy, just to name a few. Nowadays, it has become more about convenience (price, fast, easy) rather than quality when it comes time to choosing a meal. As a nurse, it it our job to continuously educate our patients on ways to take better care of themselves and keep in mind the universal struggle of finding the time, motivation and financial struggles many people have. Making sure to have a standard list of food options/ideas to provide to my patients to maybe give them a push in the right direction is a goal of mine as a nurse.
The Pacific College of Health and Science published an article titled “Holistic Medicine: a Guide for Beginners” which I found to perfectly explain what holistic health is and an example to further clarify. It stated “…a headache. The holistic practitioner will look at the patient’s health and then beyond, taking note of stress levels, lifestyle and more. The practitioner may examine the patient’s diet for any deficiencies, such as low vitamin levels, that can contribute to the headache. Often addressing these other areas can reveal treatment and prevention options for the patient, meaning even greater wellness.” Many people are now interested in finding ways to help heal/correct/improve the ailments they are experiencing and surprisingly enough, what you are putting into your body in regard to nutrition can be an easy fix to the problem in some cases. (I want a response post for this by supporting and asking questions)
